I'm new to the whole eBay world. I've only bought a few items. All have been small items. I really want a specific item and everytime it's listed I've been out bidded . For the past 3 auctions this item has been sold ( for more $$$ than I'm willing to pay) to the same buyer, who then turns around and tries to sell the item for twice as much. My question is can I contact the seller and try to purchase the item? Is this safe? Can this be done? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!
